The printer is perfect for the everyday home user. The printer is very easy to operate and the two paper trays work wonderful. The disc tray for printing is also nicely tucked away under the one paper tray. Printing quality is more than efficient for the most printing jobs and the photo printing is far better than the iP4200 I had before.

Jacobus, South Africa. 24 May 2013

I've had this printer now for 1 month and the feature I like the most about it, broke already.

Front cover opens when you print and forgot to open it - Something I really like as I usually forget and ends up with origami instead.

Gorgeous photo quality

XL Ink cartridges available at reasonable price.

Sleep mode - Shut down the printer after some inactivity and wakes it up as well when you print. (note: neither of these work when connected through wifi, only USB)

I really like the dual paper trays. I only use this printer to print my photos and onto my DVD's. The top tray I use for my smaller photo paper like 4 x 6 and the bottom tray for A4 photo paper.

DVD tray storage: The dvd tray is clipped underneath the top paper tray. That means that it isn't missing when you need it.

So far I have been able to print onto any thickness of photo paper that I have. From 110 - 260gsm.

The Front cover tray is already broken 1 month after i bought it. I haven't even used all of the setup cartridges i get with the printer. Printed about 10DVD's and 40 Photos.
The paper tray that pops open looks cool but is flimsy.

The software in my opinion is the biggest drawback with this printer. Yes even bigger than the paper tray breaking. I've had quite a few printers but never have i been so restrained in what i can do.
For example: When printing on DVD's there are a few set templates that you can choose from and drop photos here and there. You can also remove the background and put one photo as a background. But here's the main problem: Thus far I have not found a way to re-size or move the text boxes. You can't make the text bigger than the box or resize the textbox to fit bigger text.

The Photo printing program is marginally better.
Its just such a laborious task to do the simplest thing like quickly print a photo. You just can't. I long for the quick simplicity of my Epson R290. I have a HP 5525 and HP made the same mistake with their photo printing program.

In conclusion:
This printer prints excellent quality photo prints and whilst the ink isn't dirt cheap, it isn't as expensive as some photo printers.
The software was a big let down for me. Perhaps I should rephrase that, the software has loads of features, but you just can't do a simple thing like print a single 4 x 6 photo quickly with it. Its good that Canon included all that but what they seemed to forget is that most will use it to print photos or onto dvd's and they really should have included an easy or quick mode in order to do that quickly, easily and more importantly, painlessly.

The printer is well more than I could have asked for. The WiFi connectivity is great to say the least. The 5 separate inks to me are also a must and are a cost saver in the long run.A FIRST CLASS product.

Anthony, South Africa. 10 April 2014

The right printer at the right price for what I require.

Dave, South Africa. 11 June 2014

Excellent product at a reasonable price!

Mark, South Africa. 24 February 2015

Quick and easy to install. Does what I want and for the price, I am happy with the result. Photo quality is not exceptional, but it good enough for my use. WiFi printing is very slow for day-to-day printing and would rather stick to the cable for that.

Shelagh, South Africa. 24 October 2014

Had it installed on Wednesday and everything seems to be great. Have always used Canon printers so hopefully this one will serve me as well as the previous two!

Steven, South Africa. 5 June 2014

Great! Just what I wanted. Thank you!

Anneline, South Africa. 9 December 2014

We have 3 of these printers and its fantastic. Will definitely recommend it as nr 1 printer.

Easy to setup and use. Very user friendly and makes printing CD labels very easy

Marcile, South Africa. 24 January 2017

I love the printer, it is not that easy to get the CD label printer, which is why i bought this specific printer, but it prints a very high quality label. I unfortunately received a blank CD with my printer, so had to download everything from the internet to be able to work with the printer, but it all turned out good when i printed that first CD.

Craig, South Africa. 28 August 2014

I like the Canon single tank printers. They can work hard. I print regular batches (50+) A4 DVD Covers, directly onto discs and envelopes and I get my moneys worth from the printer. I only use Canon ink though and once a printer gives problems, they are replaced. Currently have 3 Canon printers.

Deon, South Africa. 13 March 2015

I had the Cannon Pima Ip4300 before I purchase this upgrade Canon Pixma iP7240. The iP4300 was a fantastic printer and the upgraded IP7240 just got better. Quality is really good and I like the fuction that the printer can print directly onto a DVD/CD.

Freyni, South Africa. 7 July 2016

Fantastic quality even on the speediest setting. Love the duplex printing feature - simple to set up. And the ink cartridges seem to last well.

Jorge, South Africa. 15 August 2014

Speedy delivery, very good printer for all those small jobs.

Tommy, South Africa. 2 June 2016

Fantastic product and service

Lance, South Africa. 26 May 2016

Printer takes a while to setup. And only comes with a cd and my MAC doesn't allow cd intake so figuring out a download, though not to difficult was annoying that there is no safe direct site. Non the less it requires 4 downloads to get all the programs to enable correct functionality of all aspects the printer offers. Other than that its a great printer. One thing they dont tell you is that it comes standard with ink. So my extra purchase of ink is just handy but could save some intial expenditure, had it said it came with ink

Dave, South Africa. 7 March 2017

Excellent product!! I would highly recommend it!

Nick, South Africa. 27 April 2017

Nice and efficient printer, despite what some overseas reviews have indicated (taking too long to get going and continually being "busy" while n standby). Only problem is no back feed tray for odd-paper sizes.

PHILIP, South Africa. 9 September 2015

Good Print quality but prefer rear feed, A bit slow to get going with all the alignment tests.

Thakhani, South Africa. 10 March 2017

This a bit difficult to print cd as some time the feeder does not work

Peter, South Africa. 9 March 2017

Very high quality printing even better than my old Canon iP4500

Stephanie Robinson, South Africa. 21 December 2015

Works okay but takes forever to start up and print one page. Still also figuring out how to calibrate the colours etc.

Kate, South Africa. 10 September 2017

Very happy with this printer! Good quality prints and easy to use. I use it to print photos at home. Definitely advise buying the XL ink cartridges though, if you want better value fo4 money.

Kabelo, South Africa. 12 August 2017

Happy with the printer. Had it for 4 months already and its running perfect. Print quality is insane even with generic inks.

Ren233, South Africa. 19 September 2017

great product. You can never go wrong with Canon

Edmond, South Africa. 18 February 2017

This printer works well

Tsietso, South Africa. 2 March 2017

Nice product. Even better that the previous model I used to own. Setup is quick and easy.

Jono, South Africa. 3 December 2015

Broken out the box

Sharifa, South Africa. 26 October 2017

Awesome, does what I need it to do. So simple and easy to install.

Ronald S., South Africa. 24 August 2017

Note this printer comes with an USB cable inside the box !
